Administrative history

Stong College (originally known as 'College ''E" ') was established in 1969. Like all the colleges at York University, Stong has a defined relationship with one of the university faculties, in this case the Faculty of Arts, with particular reference to programmes in literatures and languages. Stong College also promotes active community involvement and multicultural studies. The College is home to the Samuel Zacks Art Gallery, which exhibits Canadian, international and York student art and the Samuel Beckett Theatre which stages College productions.
The College is presided over by a Master with a General Meeting that is open to all members of the College. There is an Executive Committee made up of the chairs of various College committees with the Master and the Academic Adviser. There are also the Fellows of Stong College, who promote academic interests at the College.
